Title: Melusi’s Everyday Zulu
SIX days a week, advertising creative Melusi Tshabalala posts a Zulu word on his Everyday Zulu Facebook page and tells a story about it.
His off-beat sense of humour, razor-sharp social observations and frank political commentary not only teaches his followers isiZulu, but also offer insight into the world Melusi inhabits as a 21st century Zulu man.
Over the past few months he has built up a large, loyal following and he pokes fun at our differences and makes us laugh at ourselves and each other.
Melusi asks critical questions of everyone, from Aunty Helen, DuduZille to Silili (Cyril Ramaphosa) and even Woolworths (why are their aircons always set on ‘jou moer’?).
His fans love him for his honesty and commitment to pointing out subtle and overt forms of prejudice and racism.
